Motherhood is a rollercoaster ride both emotionally and physically. The pure miracle of falling pregnant, feeling your little one grow inside you for nine months and then the indescribable feeling of holding your child in your arms for the first time can be overwhelming. You change. your life changes. Your body changes. It can be exhausting having a child – not only because of the extreme love and anxiety you suddenly feel every day, but also the lack of sleep and the toll pregnancy, childbirth and recovery have had on your body. Sometimes it’s all you can do to just get up in the morning, never mind hit the gym to reclaim your body. It can get a bit much and many women are simply unable to manage the healthy eating and exercise it takes to get back in shape post pregnancy. This can have a negative effect on your psyche, which is why so many women opt for mommy makeover San Diego.

The cosmetic procedure deals with the areas of a woman’s body that are most affected by pregnancy – the abdomen and breasts. Women who are lucky enough to get their stomach back to its pre-pregnancy shape may still struggle with the changes to their breasts, so may just opt for a breast lift San Diego, which is one of the procedures included in a mommy makeover San Diego.

When you’re pregnant, your body goes through numerous changes to accommodate your baby’s growth and health. Estrogen and progesterone are the main pregnancy hormones and while these are essential for your baby’s health and preparing your body for birth, they can trigger weight gain and fluid retention, which can cause stretch marks and make exercise more difficult. After pregnancy, moms often find that despite dieting and exercise, there are still stubborn areas of loose skin, fat and stretch marks on their breasts and abdomen. The tummy tuck and breast lift part of the mommy makeover San Diego procedure can assist in getting rid of stretch marks if they appear in the area where excess skin will be removed.

The timing of your mommy makeover San Diego or breast lift San Diego is dependent on how quickly you regain energy and lose the pregnancy weight gained. If you are breast feeding, then most surgeons will recommend you wait for at least six months after you’ve stopped breast feeding to ensure your breasts have settled into their final shape and size post-pregnancy. Breast feeding also helps your uterus to contract and this may have an impact on your abdominal area.
